At Alley Cat Allies, we are first and foremost advocates. The work is challenging as we confront animal cruelty head-on and carefully navigate systemic threats to cats. Our staff and board are committed to working every day to protect and improve the lives of cats everywhere.

Office Cats

Oliverweb_2Oliver aka: The Shredder
(b. April 2009)
Office Job: Paper Shredder

How many laps can a cat sit on in one day? Oliver keeps a running list! He makes sure that everyone in the office gets the chance to experience his sweet disposition. If those visits are accompanied by treats, so much the better. When Oliver isn’t seeking laps and treats or lounging across desks, he’s all about that box life. Never deterred by a box’s small size, he loves curling up in one for a nap. Oliver is so content while in a box that he even allows us to give him kisses and belly rubs. If he bares his chubby middle outside of a box, watch out—he’s known for grabbing our hands. When it’s time to get a little exercise, Oliver prefers leaping into the air to catch the toys that his coworkers toss. After his workout, he’s always up for some more food!

Charlesweb-2Charles aka: Chuck
(b. May 2002)
Office Job: Supervisory Librarian

Charles has been making the rules at Alley Cat Allies for the last 15 years. We may think we run the show—CEO this, associate director that—but we’re just playing his game. He has the women of the office wrapped around his paw. Charles acts aloof, holing up in the office library, commonly referred to as “Charles’ room,” getting all warm and snuggly among his choice of beds and baskets. When he wants attention, he simply strolls into an office or cubicle and demands that his chosen coworker follow him into his room. In between rolling around and purring, he thanks her with headbutts. Charles may bare his snaggletooth and slap his tail against the floor when referred to as “cute,” but he knows he’s adorable and is pleased that everyone else knows it, too. Here’s to another year of living that glorious cat life!

Frank the Feral™ aka: #FranktheFeral
